Autodesk Build Essentials Online Training

August 8 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pm EDT

$525 per person (in the US and Canada) | 8 CPC/CEU credits

Autodesk Build is one of the fastest growing, and most affordable, construction management systems on the market. With simple user interfaces to help streamline managing, sharing, and accessing project documentation and much more, you can easily keep track of all information in your construction projects. Like any software though, learning the best methods of working in it are vital. Even a simple system like Autodesk Build requires users to have a solid understanding of how the interface works, where files and data are stored, and the fastest ways to access, edit, and share that data.

This course will teach you the fundamentals of creating and contributing to an online project in the Autodesk Construction Cloud platform, through Build.

Note: Instructor will be using the Autodesk Construction Cloud platform and the mobile app, and students are encouraged to use same. Students should have a working knowledge of a Windows OS and Web Browser, Autodesk Docs Essentials, or general familiarity with the Autodesk Construction Cloud.
